Lent for Locals 2020

Throughout the season of Lent as we reflect on Christ's sacrifice, we encourage you to help be His light in our community. We invite you to help us support those who serve others by sharing your time, in kind gifts, or financial resources.

Our 2020 Lent for Locals theme is shelter. We will focus on four local organizations that help provide homes and shelter to those in our community who don't have roof over their heads each night.  We will partner with Rush Homes, Gateway House, Adult Care Center, and Miriam's House.  Each Sunday in Lent, a representative from each organization will share with us testimonies of impact, updates on their programs, and ways we can help them serve the homeless.

If you feel moved to do something, we encourage you to act!

  • To serve alongside one of the organizations or to provide in kind donations, reach out directly to the organization on their Sunday or via their website or phone.
  • To make a financial donation, please go to our online giving page and include "Lent for Locals and the name of the organization" in the "Special Offerings" box or send a check to the church office with "Lent for Locals and the name of the organization" in the memo line.
